Varnish

All parts that need to have varnish applied, had at least 2 coats of PU (including the spars).

Things that need to be done:

One more coat of paint in the cockpit (some areas will get a coating of KiwiGrip), and a little bit of electrical work. I am still not sure how to mount the outboard motor. This decision will be made next week, when I have the engine (Honda BF2.3) to evaluate clearances, etc. The options are either to modify the transom, or, to attach the motor to a bracket. The first option keeps a lot of weight further forward, but it doesn’t look that nice. The second option leaves the transom intact, but doesn’t look good either.

Once the boat is out of the shed (i.e. on the trailer) it will take a couple of hours to do the final rigging and to bend on the sails … I am getting there.
